Does this include solo magazine covers, @sigh butterfly?

Can't include my all time favourite magazine cover unfortunately, as I can't find it on the internet.

It was a 1984 cover of weekly London entertainment and events listing magazine Time Out. Coincided with Give My Regards To Broad Street , critically seeing Paul at one of his lowest points, and the cover headline was, the lettering style Jamie Reid (did most of the Sex Pistols sleeve artwork) cut-out letters and words from newspapers: "PAUL McCARTNEY: Do You Still Need Me Now It's '84?"

The picture of Paul, a typical publicity photo of the time but heavily reimagined by the artist, who may even have been Jamie Reid, was a head and shoulders, wearing a punk leather jacket - studded and with hanging chains, Sid Vicious style; lipstick on; rouged cheeks; eyeliner and mascara; blue eyelids; and a mohican, multi-coloured - red, white, and blue, if recall correctly.

Brilliant cover. Just wish I could find it...

Anyway, I couldn't so...

Hi @Ron Nasty , yes solo Beatle's mag covers are welcome. I think I found The Time Out cover you mentioned, but it's part of a collage so it is kind of small. I'm sure a full size version will turn up before we hit 30 images.

Yeah, that's definitely it, @sigh butterfly. Thanks. Not quite as I remembered but it's been 30+ years since I saw it and I got most of the details right. I love it because it's just such a striking reimagination of Paul. More New Romantic than the Punk I recalled.

I like it too Ron. Made me laugh at first, but I think the magazines intention was serious (a good kick in the behind).
